Kingdom Gals: Are You Battle Ready?

Your Crushing and Mine; Isn’t designed to take Us out!! It may appear so; but look deeper…

The Spiritual battle isn’t like your everyday street fight! You have to come prepared and have a plan of action. Your mind has to be equipped to block those fiery darts!!!

The book of Ephesians tells us we are to put on the whole armor of God! So again I ask you! Are you battle ready? Are you ready to block those fiery darts? Are you ready to Pull yourself up; when you’ve been knocked down? Are you ready to Turn the other cheek when you’re slapped back into reality?

When that negativity comes out of nowhere! You have to come right back; “I am blessed and highly favored”! When those attacks start coming in “no weapon formed against me shall prosper” when you begin to feel like it’s too much and you want to give up; “be strong and courageous”!

We have to be battle ready! The enemy will use any situation to come in and cause destruction! That’s his job; We have to be ready! So We won’t be defeated; in our minds, our bodies, our soul and our spirit! Stay on guard!

Every situation God uses to build Us up; the enemy can switch it up and try to break us down! For example; God can be moving the wrong people out our lives and the enemy flips it and have us thinking that we did something wrong for these people to depart and what we do? We Chase after them! Or have a pity party! Please Realize the blessing in disguise! God has better on the way; allow Him to part the sea in your life! Allow Him to work!

When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fiery furnace they weren’t burned, they didn’t even smell of smoke; why?

Because God was with them! They didn’t deny him, they didn’t compromise, they didn’t lower their standards; they believed and had Faith that God was with them and that He would show up and show out!

What Is God trying to accomplish in your life? Living for God isn’t and won’t be easy! The battles will be many but He has equipped Us with ALL WE NEED.

So, I challenge you all today:

Pick up your Full Armor of God!

Pick up your Helmet

Pick up your sword

Pick up your shield

There is a BATTLE TO BE WON!

Are You Ready?

Free Your Mind Friday’s 

It’s finally here y’all; the day many of us can’t wait to get too!! Friday oh how I love thee; let me count the ways! 

Many of you are excited and jumping up and down because it’s pay day! Well hip hip hooray! Lol, there are some of us just super excited it’s the end of the workweek!! Hallelujah 

Sometimes all you can do on Friday and over the weekend is take a mental break! The work week can be hectic for many especially those with kids! Getting them up for school, fixing them breakfast, getting them dressed; and take them to their bus stop. Then you have to get back home get yourself ready for work, feed and walk your pets, fix you some breakfast or grab something on the way and then get to work! And then once you get to work depending on your job; that can be hectic as well! Is it just me or do I have some witnesses ready to testify?

So what is a girl or guy to do to de-stress?

1. Meditate! Do you remember Martin Lawrence in the movie called Bad Boys? The scene when he was really irritated and he remembered his therapy technique to calm himself down; he rubbed his ears and spoke this words: “Woosah” and then he karate kicked something! Lol this is way different and really simple; close your eyes and take a deep breathe, in and out and imagine yourself on a secluded island with no one and nothing to distract you or disturb your peace and quiet! “Woosah

2. Get a massage! This is a great way to get your relaxation on and popping! Many places have the dim lights and sleepy time music playing! Hey what more can you ask for? Give it a try; you won’t regret it!

3. Get acupuncture! My absolute favorite! It a great stress reliever and takes away pain; its a double portion that you may not get with any other methods!!

4. Go on a weekend getaway and relax! Wherever you are in the world; I’m sure you have some pretty cool places around that you can visit on a Friday evening until Sunday morning! It doesn’t have to be far either; it can be the next town or city over. 

5. Reserve a tech-free day! You should try this once per week preferably Saturday or Sunday it will do your mind some good. Many of us have our phones on us at all the time and it does more harm than good; just think about it. You have all the news outlets at your disposal, social media accounts, etc. All of that media overload; your mind needs a break. 

Now one that I didn’t include in the lineup; is because this can be done any day of the week. Dancing; now I know some of you may not be the best dancer; but who cares! Do this in the comfort of your own home where nobody but you or your family can see you and get a good laugh; what better stress reliever is there than laughter!

Have an amazing weekend! Get your mind in relax mode and rock out!
